Prince Fielder – Mixed Signals – Wrigley Field 12/17/11

Posted on 17 December 2011 by Lou

Seems like Dale Sveum fits right in with Theo & Co.  Epstein and his entourage are known for their uncanny ability to keep things close to the vest when pursuing free agents/trades.  While ESPN 1000’s Bruce Levine and ESPN analyst Jerry Crasnick have both reported that the Cubs are actively pursuing Prince Fielder and that talks heated up a little bit this week, new Cubs Manager Dale Sveum said otherwise.  After announcing his new coaching staff, Sveum had this to say about the Cubs pursuit of Fielder: “At this point it’s a lot of media talk.  We haven’t had any talks with Prince.  I haven’t had any conversations. Again it’s a lot of media.”

That sucks.  I hope he’s wrong or I hope that he’s just playing along with the whole Theo & Co. plan to lay low in the weeds and then strike at the right time with a solid deal that Fielder and his agent Scott Boras can’t refuse.

We’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything else.  Go Cubs Go!
